PUBG Mobile’s ban caused significant heartbreak in the Indian gaming community. The game was banned by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology in September 2020 alongside 117 other applications citing security and privacy reasons.

For the past eight months, fans have been keenly awaiting the comeback of the prominent BR title. They breathed a sigh of relief when Krafton announced that a regional variant of the game, i.e., PUBG Mobile India, would be released soon. The company even released several trailers which featured Kronten, Dynamo, and Jonathan.
